Ziggity Zoo Day

Tim's sister Amy and her family are in town.  We have been having so much fun with them and are very excited for them to be closer soon!  On Friday we headed to the Wildlife World Zoo with Martha, Amy, Colin, and Kristen.  We had tons of fun and the weather couldn't have been better for a day outdoors.  
Matthew and James got a kick out of this bird because it was eating... fruit!  They thought that was hilarious.  Matthew was telling me while I took this picture how funny that was.

James and I liked this bird.  You can't tell from the picture, but it was the most vibrant blue color under its white feathers.  James sat and pointed at it for a while.
One of Matthew's favorite parts was feeding the giraffe.  He had just dropped food on the giraffe's tongue and it licked his hand.  Giraffes have very slimy tongues and Matthew agrees...

Which resulted in my all-time favorite picture of him.

Took a ride on the fastest carousel ever.  Not only was it a short ride, but is spun super fast.  It took me a while to recover from it.

Shockingly, Matthew picked an animal to go on, instead of sitting on one of the benches.  

I could not get James to smile for the camera.  He just sat in the wagon and looked grumpy.

Until Grandma came over and cracked him up.

And what's a better way to end the day than a dip in the pool?  Maybe getting a non-coerced smile out of a super cute boy.

Thanks Martha for the fun day!
